About this Product

The First King’s Beast Coin has Arrived: The 2022 2 oz. Silver Lion of England!

The 2 oz. silver Queen’s Beasts series from the Royal Mint in the United Kingdom was without a doubt one of their most popular in their rich and storied history! From 2017 to 2021 these special 2 oz. silver coins were some of the most sought-after coins in the world! Each of the 10 coins honored one of the Heraldic Beast statues that oversaw Queen Elizabeth II during her coronation!

After the massive success of the Queen’s Beasts, the Royal Mint is now striking a new 2oz. silver series honoring the Heraldic Beasts of House Tudor AKA the King’s Beasts!

We are proud to announce the arrival of the first coin in this stunning .9999 fine silver series: the Lion of England!

The First of the King’s Beasts – The Lion of England

This is the first coin in the new series from the Royal Mint honoring the 10 Heraldic Beasts of the House of Tudor. The Kings and Queens of House Tudor ruled during an era that saw England grow into one of the world’s foremost superpowers and a leader of the renaissance movement.

The Heraldic Beasts of House Tudor are the 10 statues created by Henry VIII that stand guard along the Moat Bridge of Hampton Court Palace. The first of these beasts to be honored in the new series is one of the most iconic: The Lion of England!

The design of this coin features an incredibly detailed rendition of the Lion of England, wearing a crown while holding a shield that features Henry VIII and his third wife’s respective heraldries! First appearing during the 12th century, the Lion of England represents the pride and courage of the King!

The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II that was featured on all of the Queen’s Beast coins.

This coin is sure to become one of the most sought after in the entire series – Firsts in a series is always a must-own piece for any collector!
